Communication and De-escalation in Negotiations

Communication and De-escalation is a “back to the basics” presentation reminding negotiators there is no need to reinvent the wheel. The foundation of active listening has been laid out for us thanks to the FBI.

Building on this solid foundation by using communication techniques such as nonverbal communication, voice inflection and employing Stephan Covey’s technique of “listening with the intent to understand” instead of “listening with the intent to reply.” Learning to avoid problem solving and not being afraid to talk off topic. Rapport building is the name of the game.

What do we do when we are faced with the mentally ill? Can we negotiate with the mentally ill? Be safe but get creative, avoid traps of being lured into their hallucinations.

This presentation is beneficial to new negotiators and tactical officers that may be unexpectedly faced with negotiating. It is also a great refresher for veteran negotiators.

Justin has accomplished rank of Staff Sgt with specialized training in defensive tactics, first aid, firearms instruction, with no previous criminal involvement. Sara Tang describes her husband as a dedicated husband and perfect father figure to their 2 yr old son Kyler.

Justin has a near death experience when an RPG skims off the roof of his Humvee while in a convoy in a non-combat zone in Iraq. During Justin’s time in Iraq he loses close friends to combat.

Justin has accomplished most of his goals in life, a home, wife, a son and a truck. Now back from Iraq Justin regularly trains soldiers locally and at Ft Benning Ga.. Justin finds work selling insurance in tough economic times and works 60 + hrs weekly trying to make ends meet. Justin exhibits PTSD behavioral traits and at one point admits he may have PTSD but knows he cannot acknowledge it for fear it would end his military career, which in his mind defines who he is.

On November 23, 2010 Justin’s world crumbles after finding proof that his wife has cheated on him during his time out of state and out of country. Wife Sara, denies allegations however Justin finds proof and photos. Justin loses control, beats Sara unconscious, while 2 yr old Kyler sleeps in his bedroom. Justin calls 911 and requests medical attention for Sara stating he has opened her airway and there will be a note explaining everything because he will be “gone” when police arrive.

Justin owns several firearms, rifles, assault rifles, shotguns, handguns, along with hundreds of rounds of ammunition. Justin is a very proficient adversary making this incident a high threat, high lethality situation.

A new, minimally trained dispatcher Amy Burge who was assigned 911-call taker that evening conducts negotiations. Burge deescalates Justin and maintains good rapport until transition is made to hostage negotiator Torres. Six hours of negotiating with Justin who is adamant about killing himself prove successful but not without some struggles along the way.

Four years later in a post incident interview Tang still denies PTSD but admits he attends a support group for soldiers that have problems “with that kind of stuff.”

Using the Reactionary Gap for your Survival and Understand the OODA Loop

No doubt about it, one of the key factors in surviving a close quarters physical confrontation with a subject – armed or unarmed – is engaging a safe and sound survival mindset and knowing how to establish and enforce the reactionary gap.

The reactionary gap is the distance an officer must keep between them and their subject for him or her to be able to respond effectively and efficiently to any sudden threat made against them while in proximity. The minimum distance can vary and is dependable upon several factors an officer must learn to identify and recognize. Success in close quarters combat situations also require an officer to know his or her danger zone and how to use it to attain tactical advantage. Lastly, officers facing such threats of personal violence and in such situations, must know how their reaction time – their ability to respond with force equal to or greater than the threat they’re facing – will factor into the actions and response plan.

Setting A Survival Mindset will also discuss how understanding and implementing the four-point OODA Loop decision-making process (Observe, Orient, Decide and Act) will assist officers with efforts to make quick, proactive and effective live-saving personal decisions.

Yes, while speed and strength are important variables to an officer’s ability to survive and walk away from a violent close quarters encounter, so too are his and her analytical skills and being able to successfully interpret what’s really happening in real time.
